Schwalbe 'Hans Dampf' 26er or 29er TLR Tire

Last updated 2012-12-10 - Send Feedback
Related: gear, Moots, mountain biking, Schwalbe

The Schwalbe 'Hans Dampf' is a robust tire with aggressive knobs that don’t let go.

Get the Schwalbe Hans Dampf at Amazon.

I have extensive riding experence with the Hans Dampf, and is by far my favorite tire for rough conditions on my Moots Mooto X YBB, such as some of the roads in the White Mountains.

Regrettably, the Hans Dampf will fit the front, but mounted on the rear, the outer knobs rubs the chainstays, so I use the Schwalbe 'Racing Ralph' for the rear.

Tubeless ready — sealant required

The sidewalls of the Hans Dampf are thick with zero pinholes, so mount and go immediately. No need to wait for sealant to work; it’s needed only if a flat occurs.

For rough conditions with sharp rocks, I use three bottles (6 oz total) of Stan’s NoTubes sealant for the Hans Dampf given its heavy duty usage (normally I use two bottles).

Protect Your Phone
NuGard KX Case for iPhones and iPads.
Outstanding protection against drops and impact!
Plus, excellent grip for wet hands, cycling, etc.

Tire pressure

The Hans Dampf runs well at 23-28 PSI. With ample volume and huge knobs, 23 PSI runs great. I generally run it at around 25 PSI, 23 PSI for rougher stuff, 28 PSI for faster rolling.

Grip

Bites into stuff big time.

Particularly good on loose gravel compared to other tires, though loose enough and you can still slide and go down.

Rolling resistance

On asphalt, there is tons of bite and this is not a fast tire.

Tread

The picture below shows the Hans Dampf at left. It looks small compared to a 3.7" Surly Endomorph tire for the Moots FrosTi snow bike.
